Art Legacy Projects 2016
CALLING ALL STORYTELLERS & ARTISTS
Be a part of this exciting creative experience where stories and art come together!
The Art Legacy Project is a bi-annual oration of three stories with artists responding, in real time, to the tales that are told. At the end of the evening there is an opportunity for members of the audience to purchase a piece of the artwork. All proceeds from the event benefit Suzie Cappa Art Center and Rapid City Arts Council.
For more information or questions, email email@example.com.
Storytelling is the conveying of events in words and images. Stories have been shared in every culture as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation, and instilling moral values since the beginning of time. Through the magic of language and the storyteller's skill, stories can come to life with landscapes and costumes as colorful and complex as the creative listener devises.
Do you have an epic story you’d like to share? Share your story with a live audience while an artist captures the moment visually.
The purpose of the artist is to give tangible form to feelings, refresh our
vision and help the listener see the story in new ways. Artists will capture a particular moment, emotion or scene from the story that resonates with them.
Want to challenge yourself artistically and help someone visualize their story? All mediums accepted, we encourage you to be creative!
